HOW HOUSTON NEIGHBORHOODS GOT THEIR NAMES

A friend sent me this article about Houston neighborhoods got their names.   As a native Houstonian, it was fascinating to read the history of how the neighborhoods we live in got their names.  I knew the Memorial Villages were at one time ranchettes-5-20 acres mini ranches so the residents that lived in the city would have a country place on the weekends.  Kinkaid purchased the last ranchette in 2014! It was the property adjoining the school. I hope you enjoy this little history lesson.
